At the webpage of Nordland Theatre the following, among other things, is written about Narvik:

"Hitler suffered his first defeat in the battle of Narvik. Norwegian and allied forces reconquered the town after hard fighting, before the turns of the war led to giving up the town. One of the soldiers who went, a young boy from Liverpool, had to leave not just Norway, but also the love of his life, a young Norwegian girl.

When the end approaches and the hour of reckoning has come, which are the thoughts one thinks and where is the emphasis? This is how the play Narvik opens. It delves deep into emotions, regrets, love, tested friendship and not least the war. Two friends in an impossible situation. In a radio room aboard a warship lives are changed for ever. Black sea! Steel and water! Two young persons are brought together and divided by the same war."
